You're a Super Muma to?
Josh who is 19yrs and studying marketing at uni and Emily who is 16yrs and in Yr 11.
What have your children taught you in the last few months?
I learn off my children daily as I do everyone. Whether it’s another point of view, what’s in fashion, humour, how to use technology. They make me laugh daily.
Who inspires you?
Anyone can inspire me. If you look in the papers or on TV there is someone daily facing adversity and overcoming it. But in the fitness industry, it’s the members who give effort every time they come in. Whether it’s an extra session a week, one extra push up. I ‘m inspired by them daily.
You are the head trainer and co-owner at F45 Training Hawthorn. Can you tell us what this business is about?
F45 is the fastest growing fitness chain in the world currently. It's high intensity interval training (HIIT) in a team environment. It involves strength and cardio conditioning with functional exercises, every session is different and it’s truly addictive.
Do you have mummy classes for our Super Mumas to attend to?
Of course, being a Mum myself it is important to provide a workout the fits in with all families. You can work out before the kids wake, or when you have dropped them at school. If they have a morning sleep we have lunchtime classes too. We also provide evening classes for those working Mums too.
How do you keep a balance between your work life and life with your family?
I have always been an organized person, but it comes down to priorities. When the kids were young, I was always around in the morning and at night. Now they are older I work early mornings but are always home for all the after school sporting or working commitments.
I am also blessed to have a great husband who supports me and a great business partner.
What is your biggest fear?
Personally and in business it would have to be that I am not challenging myself.
What are the key pieces of advice you have for other Super Mumas out there?
Please nurture yourself. Whether it be physical, mentally or spiritually. You are never too busy. There are so many resources out there that don’t cost much or take too much time. It could be as simple as a meditation app, a bath at home a diary to record daily affirmations. Have friends older and younger than you too.
What is your best beauty tip?
Sleep, water, exercise, healthy fats and a smile..
Never again will I....
That’s really hard, I don’t know how to answer that one with any certainty. Currently I am trying to change some of my thought patterns to certain situations, so I will say that.
What's in store for the rest 2015?
I will be working hard on the business and more challenges I hope.
How can we find you?
F45 Hawthorn is found across the road from Swinburne University. We are surrounded by some of the best cafes in Melbourne.
